abstract

This chapter investigates two propositions that have become premises of the international debate around the question of the protection of traditional knowledge: first, that the protection of traditional knowledge is primarily a question of the rights of Indigenous Peoples; and, secondly, that the form of the protection of TK is primarily a question of intellectual property law.
